photos of objects and vector clip art images. Plus, the software ships with
specialty photo corners, background papers, photo frames, pre-designed
templates and 100+ Super-Masks for designer effects.
POWERFUL DESIGN TOOLS
An unprecedented suite of tools is included to help users get stunning
results. Simple, one-step tools let users quickly draw shapes, add
graphics, arrange and align objects, rotate objects and add designer
special effects. There are more than 30 shapes with smart controls to help
users create custom design elements. Built-in rulers, project grid lines,
snap-to-grid, real-time alignment guides and full zoom capabilities make
positioning objects a breeze.
iScrapbook comes with an array of special effects once reserved for graphic
artists. Some of the more familiar effects include image cropping, photo
effects like Sepia, shadows, transparency and linear and circular
gradients. Plus, users can easily create more advanced special effects like
selective focusing, clipping an image to any shape and filling text with
any image. The software ships with 100+ smart-masks which can be used on
both shapes and images to create fades, soften edges, add texture, etc.
iScrapbook can import photos and clip art in popular formats. A built-in
Favorites Bin lets users store favorite graphics, shapes, and text for
quick and easy future reuse. The Favorites Bin even remembers any special
formatting or attributes applied to an object such as font, stroke color,
transparency, masks, etc.
